wonderful me, meditation and two cats

Migraine Awareness Month #13: “You Are Beautiful.” Write yourself a love letter. Tell yourself how wonderful you are. Remind yourself of the things you have accomplished despite Migraines. There are times when we need to be reminded of the good things about ourselves that others see that we may have missed.

okay. you do realize i am british, right? this question is mostly made of squirm, for me, but i do get the point of this so i will BRAVELY push on…

  • this blog.
  • i have learned and taught meditation.
  • i have a good relationship.
  • i look after my dear little doggy.
  • i make friends and cherish friendships.
  • i manage my own household, perhaps not perfectly, but still, could be worse!
  • i am compassionate towards others.
  • what else? i dunno! isn’t that enough?

enough already. bring me treats and sing to me while i eat them

if you are interested in using meditation techniques to help manage pain i can recommend these talks and led meditations. don’t worry about whether you have ever meditated before or not.
these are free to use, and if you want to make a donation to audiodharma you can. there are a lot of other links on that site if you get enthusiastic, but for painiacs as much as anyone else pema chodron’s advice holds true “start where you are”.

my wonderful myofascial release guy, ron, is moving home. due to circumstances i won’t go into here, he needs either temporary or permanent homes for his two cats, pearl and hannah pretty urgently. they live happily together, but could be homed separately. he might not get settled for some months and he doesn’t want to disrupt them too much, so understands that it might be better for them to be rehomed permanently. he is willing to continue to pay the health insurance and bills for the rest of their lives.

    • they are lovely cats. i have said i would try them with poppet if we don’t find home/s soon, but pops has got a hellofa prey instinct on her. it would be better for her if they were kittens, because she’s a natural mother, too.

      • Could she be introduced to them gradually at all? I’ve known dogs and cats to become great friends, even if introduced to each other quite late in life.

        • indeed. i know how, as well. i have read all about how to use a baby gate to make things gradual. the thing is that although both of us would LIKE it to work, if it doesn’t then rehoming the cats would become kind of urgent.

          • Umm… baby gate? The cats could slink through the bars couldn’t they?

            I honestly wish I could take these two beautiful girls myself, but I’m totally allergic, our house is completely unsuitable and it wouldn’t be fair on them or a friendly neighbour to feed them while we’re visiting my son 😦

            • someone will take them – or they will settle in here.

              the baby gate is to let the girls through if chased by madam. i would start with them in their carriers, then erect the baby gate and put the dog on the lead in the room. once things have become calm, assuming they do, then we will SEE!

              baby gate can be continued for a while, but i think that if cats and dogs are going to live in harmony it will be evident fairly quickly. ron would come and stay over for a night or two to help with the transition.

    • hi there!

      yes, i often tell her that i am very sorry for her only being able to have MOST of the bed etc. she is totally spoiled rotten and is quite the entitled little madam. of course, it works both ways. this way i get to cuddle her all the time. she is super friendly with other dogs as well, and great with children. very patient.

      • You can see it in her photos. Poppet has such a wonderful nature about her.

        My Ella and Louis (Vizsla sister and brother) would love to adopt your friend’s cats, but primarily for ‘playing with’ purposes. I just don’t think it’d turn out well. Not at all.

        Sadly.
